Crash while routing

Post by slayman » Sat Aug 04, 2018 2:01 pm

Okay, I'll be the first....I'm recreating the routes from a trip I took last year. Spokane WA to Lancaster PA. I know I could have saved them off of the 550 each day but that wasn't at all convenient. The next to last day was all highway, RT 64 from St Louis to Charelston WV. I can create the route to a spot on the eastern outskirts of Lexington KY and working from Charleston westward to a spot just east of Sterling KY. Somewhere on Rt 64 between those two locations Mapsource crashes. Mapsource 2017.1/20.10 Obviously not a critical issue, just wondering why that might be happening.

Which map are you using? There have been issues in the past with MapSource crashing in certain areas with certain maps. You should find BaseCamp works better.

City Nav NA NT 2017.1. Basecamp, yes perhaps. I've gotten fairly proficient with Mapsource and the old Zumo.

I have the same issue with my 550 with the 2019.2 maps and Mapsource (Windows 10). Very frustrating to say the least. I have started to use Basecamp since Mapsource keeps crashing. Hopefully someone will post a solution (if there is one).

I got so frustrated with MapSource crashing few yrs back I felt I no choice but to switch to something else. I tried a few different packages and wound up with Base Camp. Since then no problems.
